Old Masters Gallery at the Herbst Palace
The album contains reproductions of the most interesting paintings from the collection of Herbst Palace Museum. It attracts attention with a white square partly covering the painting reproduced on the cover – it annoys, surprises, makes readers curious.
On opening the album a reader is introduced to the history of the collection and has an opportunity to look at high-quality artwork reproductions. They include Napoleon on Horseback by the convention-breaking painter-aristocrat Piotr Michałowski, Mother's Portrait that brought international acclaim to Henryk Rodakowski and Playing Crocquet by Leon Wyczółkowski – an inteligent game of light. The remaining ones are well worth discovering.
